Initially only available for users running OS X, the P0sixspwn jailbreak for iOS 6.1.x has now been updated and made available for Windows users with immediate effect.
P0sixspwn for Mac OS X is out. Follow the instructions on how to jailbreak iOS 6.1.5, 6.1.4 and 6.1.3 untethered on iPhone 5, 4s, 4, 3GS, iPod touch 4, 5 and other devices.
iOS developers ih8sn0w and Winocm have been working together on the iOS 6.1.3 untethered jailbreak for a while now. Today they have released a new video showing the untether working on a 5th-generation iPod touch 5.
At this years’ Hack in the Box conference in Amsterdam, Evad3rs not only presented the Evasi0n jailbreak, but also took time out to answer some of the common questions in a separate exclusive Q&A session with the press. The video recording of this session is now available online for everyone to see.
Following the news that Apple had plugged the Evasi0n untethered jailbreak for A5+ powered iPhone 5, iPad and other new devices with the release of iOS 6.1.3, it was a case of being back to square one for those purchasing these new devices. Anybody running iOS 6.1.2 or earlier can jailbreak across the board, but if iOS 6.1.3 taught us anything, it's that the cat is never too far behind the mouse, and will eventually get clawed. Usually, this is a demoralizing period of time, yet although there is of course no untethered jailbreak just yet for the very latest firmware, we have already seen plenty of very encouraging signs for future firmware releases.
As far as prominent figures in the jailbreak community go, Joshua Hill - also known as P0sixninja - is up there with the best of them. If you remove his various public Twitter based meltdowns from the equation, you are left with a person who has undoubtedly been one of the most important components in the production of recent jailbreaks. Although we haven't heard a great deal from him since his rather acrimonious departure from the Chronic Dev Team, it looks like he could be potentially about to propel himself back to the top of the pecking order after claiming to have all the necessary exploits required for the production of a new jailbreak.
Since releasing iOS 6.1, Apple has slowly but surely been working on improvements. iOS 6.1.1 beta was seeded shortly after iOS 6.1 had reached the public domain, but because iOS 6.1.1 and 6.1.2 had to be hurriedly released to the public to see to a number of bugs and security flaws, the next beta was renamed iOS 6.1.3 beta 2, in an attempt to restore some kind of order. Today, rather than releasing iOS 6.1.3 beta 3, the Cupertino company has instead pushed out the update to Maps for those boasting an iOS device - the same updates first seen in those earlier betas.
